Last night I tried 2004 Hess Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon wine that a friend gave me. It went well with Spicy Italian Pasta with Tomato Sauce.
First you will notice hickory flabor. It tastes smooth and full bodied. Cinnamon, Plum, and Cherry flavors ringer on a tang. You do not get tired of this wine.
It is around $25 per bottle. It received 90 points.
It is made in Allomi Valley, Nappa Valley, California at 770-950 feet above sea level elevation. The valley has an exposure to Southwest of a mountain. It's considered as the ideal location to grow Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Their wine tasting is open from 10 to 5 daily. For those, who cannot physically visit the winery, they offer web tasting for wine varieties.
This Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon wine is listed at the 3rd from the top on the web site. The wine maker, Dave Guffy explains about the location, climate, and conditions of this winery, as well as the taste of this wine in a video clip, about 2 minutes 52 seconds.
This winery is also famous as an art collector. They exhibit art collections of 45 years of art works from American, Europe, Africa, and Asia since 1960 at the Art Gallery. The Art Gallery is open from 10 to 4:45 daily.
Winemaker Notes: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, and 3% Malbec.
Tasting Notes: Notes of toffee, vanilla bean and hickory on the nose which lead into black cherry, pomegranate and black licorice onthe palate. Seamless tannins flow through the mid palate and then dovetail into a dark chocolate finish.
